Cold winter days...
Cold winter evenings...
need warm winter soup especially after a walk along the coast...brrrr
This is a winning soup and seems to be a favourite of very cute sister as her bowl was sparkly clean after a few minutes;-)...
So you will need -
2 bunches fresh spinach
4 pears - peeled and chopped
1 large onion - chopped
1 tsp brown sugar
1 Tblsp butter
5 potatoes - cubed
3 sweet potatoes - cubed
Ground Black Pepper
3 pinches ground nutmeg
Wash the spinach very well - its not nice to have crunchy spinach soup.
Meanwhile in a pot add the butter, chopped onion and sugar. Cook until nice and brown.
Add the potatoes, sweet potatoes, pears,salt, pepper, nutmeg and stock to cover all the ingredients.
While cooking you can add a little more water if need be -
- not to much as then your soup will be very thin.
Add the spinach. Bring to boil, once spinach has wilted, turn down and let it simmer till everything is cooked through.
Take off the stove and blend with a hand held blender. Add the tub of cream and mix well. Taste and add more salt or pepper if need be
Enjoy with some nice crusty homemade farl...
